Bank of America Appears to be Misleading Its Customers About Supporting Planned Parenthood

Bank of America gave Planned Parenthood $50,000.00 in 2017. But the company did so through the Bank of America Charitable Foundation. That foundation matches employee gifts to charitable organizations so Bank of America has some solid plausible deniability. The foundation has to direct payments to match employees. Employees gave so the foundation must give.

That’s fair. Bank of America says that is the only reason it gives to Planned Parenthood, an organization that exists to kill children, particularly targeting minority communities. There is just a problem with this.

2ndVote, an organization that tracks corporate spending, notes that Bank of America has given to Planned Parenthood through its corporate giving too, contrary to what the bank has claimed.

Planned Parenthood lists Bank of America, not the foundation, as a corporate sponsor for two fundraising galas, including as late as 2018. That contradicts the bank’s prior statements to customers and shareholders. It is deeply problematic that Bank of America would misrepresent its giving to distort its support for an organization that kills children and sells their body parts for scrap.
